Tracking Crime...
I've been loving things google for a long time. Blogger, Picasa and of course the easy to use and ubiqutous GoogleMaps. I reported on ChicagoCrime.org awhile ago and placed a button over on the left. Totally cool way to track neighborhood crime and even subscribe to rss feeds detailing what's happening on you own block on the Chicago Police blotter.

Well it was only a matter of time until someone put level 3 sex offenders living in your neighborhood on the web and combine it with the selection, sorting and display power of google maps. Here it is...just plug in your street or zip code.

Now if we only had a similar tool to track people with outstanding Housing Court warrants in Buffalo City Court and of course a BuffaloCrime map would be totally awesome. Got to write Mayor Elect Byron Brown a letter tomorrow...
